A $700 Bathroom Makeover Made For Kids

HGTV

Would you ever design a bathroom around your children? We're not talking about painting it a fun color or adding a toothbrush holder in a wacky shape, we mean literally installing things at new heights, and adding fixtures that are more kid friendly. One family did and here's how it all went down:

Although there's no photographic evidence of this makeover, the folks over at HGTV are quite specific on the products and changes that were made to the bathroom that received a kid-friendly makeover. The homeowners wanted to help their children with bathroom basics, keep things safe and even save energy in the process. The adjustments they made included:

• A motion sensor for the overhead light
• Automatic faucet with shut off
• Easy close toilet seats

Although other customizations such as lowering cabinets, installing footstools or making a larger space between walls and toilets that make wiping baby bums easier are great, the above renovations, although pricey are good additions to a house for not just kids, but adults too.

Check out all the details on this renovation over at HGTV where you'll find links for product and hear what worked out and what didn't (psst, motion sensors don't always work!).
